Putting Personality back into your headshots

Do you get nervous in front of a camera? You’re not alone. We feel scrutinized and unsure of what to do with our body, so we want to rush through headshots all while feeling worried that the photos won’t turn out well and trying to hide that worry behind a fake smile. Yikes! No wonder so many people dislike photos of themselves.

At Art of Headshots our photographer’s talent with a camera is obvious. More importantly, their natural empathy and ability to listen help ease your nerves. Once the jitters subside they’re able to make your personality shine.

Invest in your future by getting our professional Ottawa headshots photographer to expertly capture your personality in your headshots.

We hired Art of Headshots to take our headshots and group photos.  We are a brand new law firm and wanted these photos for our website.  We opted for the branding session which includes a meeting with the photographer prior to the photoshoot to discuss our brand, vision and audience, all of which to inform the style of photos,  backgrounds etc.  We had a wonderful experience working with our photographer. He was professional, experienced and knowledgeable. We sat down and together created a planned and focused photoshoot that served our marketing purposes well. The photos are beautiful and the backgrounds he suggested turned out perfectly.  We really liked his relaxed approach during the session.  It helped us relax and look natural and authentic in the photos.  Every now and then he asked us to close our eyes and think about the business we are building, the people we will be helping etc. and then open our eyes.  He would then capture our expression.  It really brought out who we are.  It was all in all the best experience I’ve had with business photography.  I highly recommend their service and plan on asking them to do more photos for us in the future as the firm grows.

This is my second time working with these guys to get my headshots done. This time round, it was really important to me to showcase my brand and that I am approachable with the start of my new company Level Update. As always, Carlos and his team knocked it out of the park.
